PDDB focuses on data used in Prion Disease (PD) research.
This site provides
tools which allow scientists to analyze, store, and share this data
with other scientists.
There are two main ways to access information in PDDB:
Use the Search box in the upper right corner to search for genes. The results page
has a summary of each gene that matched
the search term and provides links to pages with more
information. It works best to search for identifiers, such as gene
symbols (e.g., PRNP)
PDDB does not do full text searching.
Click on a link in the list on the left side of the page
(called the "navigation bar"). Most links point to
pages that provide access to specific kinds of information.
